Competition to design new logotype for journal of aesthetics and the philosophy
of art - £300 prize.
The Postgraduate Journal of Aesthetics (PJA) will shortly re-launch as Debates
in Aesthetics. The journal is running a competition to design a new logotype
for the journal. The competition is open to undergraduate or postgraduate
students at art and design schools or in fine art/design departments in any
country. The designer of the winning entry will receive £300, and a short
feature about the winner and their work will appear in the first issue of the
journal. Entries should be submitted to edi...@pjaesthetics.org
<mailto:edi...@pjaesthetics.org>. Deadline for entries is the 18th of November
Entries will consist of a design for a full logotype, consisting of “Debates in
Aesthetics”, along with a shortened logotype, consisting of an acronym for the
journal (perhaps “DiA" or “DA”). Entries to the competition will consist of two
images in .jpeg, .pdf or .tiff format files. The resolution of the images must
be at least 300dpi. As a journal of the philosophy of art and philosophical
aesthetics, entries with aesthetic or artistic merit that nonetheless reflect
the academic nature of the journal are strongly encouraged.
The logotype of the journal’s current title can be found at:

societies can be found at the following addresses:

Debates in Aesthetics will be a peer-reviewed, open-access journal for high

valuable forum for discussing influential philosophical arguments and ideas,
and create continuity between postgraduate and professional aestheticians.
